This winter, as part of our efforts to work with London’s many homeless communities, and our commitment to interfaith work, IMI will be joining with St John’s church in Waterloo to take part in ‘Robes’, a homeless project, over 6 Wednesdays this winter. They take in 20 guests, around 16 men and 4 women (no severe mental illness or substance misuse as they don’t have provisions for those). The church provides dinner, bed and breakfast and there is a social worker on hand to help sort out underlying issues with housing. The idea is to not just provide dinner but to eat and talk with guests to give them a chance to feel part of an inclusive community.

The venue is wheelchair accessible and there is a vegetarian option for dinner.

The evenings are: 30th Dec, 6th Jan, 13th Jan, 20th Jan, 27th Jan and 3rd Feb and the roles needed are as follows:
6-7pm Setting up beds (involves heavy lifting!)
7-9pm Serving dinner and eating with guests
6.30-8.30am following day: Serving breakfast and clear-up (please note this is heavily pork-based so they do not expect us to do this!)

You only need to come one of these sessions on any one of the evenings. Our friends at St John’s Church have suggested we come in pairs of more so we are not too lonely but if you’re coming alone we can match you up with someone! Please sign up to which date and time you are interested in and we will see you there inshAllah!
